Investing in resilience in a climate of uncertainty

The climate crisis is expected to push more than 125 million people into extreme poverty by 2030. We focus on solutions that build economic and climate resilience for those on the frontlines.

Our energy portfolio focuses on providing off-grid electricity access, delivering solar-powered appliances, and building clean energy infrastructure.

We help farmers and rural families increase incomes to withstand climate shocks by investing in cutting-edge solutions like distributed renewables and regenerative agriculture.

We invest in companies developing solutions to reduce food waste, mitigate deforestation, increase biodiversity, and re-imagine waste management.

We put people and planet at the center of our work.

Across energy, agriculture, and workforce, we create investment strategies designed to break the cycle of poverty and create a more sustainable future for everyone.

Partnering for impact

Creating change at scale stems from the power of community. We achieve more when we work together.
